      I was afraid of the KK and I only called because his bets were ~1/2 pot. If his bet on river was bigger I would fold.

      Hello Gloryne,

      Well, the guy can't really bet a lot bigger while he doesn't have much left in his stack. :D So I wouldn't really base on that. Another thing is that he ain't bluffing here either into 2 opponents. The only question is if he can have worse Ax hands, what kind of VPIP and stuff he does have. You most likely beating a weaker Ax hand here and that's only it. Although as you pick such a line then against such a stack shouldn't be a mistake.

      Best Regards.

      OK. His VPIP/PFR after 47 hands was 28/2, and he eventually had Q7.

      So, here is my dilemma. I encounter a lot of big big fish in this site (bwin - there is no NL2 there, it starts with NL4), who bluff very much with air. So the only thing I was afraid was if he had a K or an A, like you said, but I thought very probable to also have nothing.

      Should I just stop thinking like this and play by the book, even when I know that they are that kind of opponents?

      Well, if you expect the opponent to bluff then you can always play like this, why not? I mean in long run you gonna earn profit. Also with your Check you kinda induces him to bluff against you.
